    Trixia Salonga

    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights.

    Shinya Shokudo

    disclosure: I do not own the rights to the pictures, these are screenshots of the series and movie, all rights to production of Shinya Shokudo.

    I’ve never felt this warmth over food and company from others. Shinya Shokudo got everything right in the feels, it was the heartfelt perfect combination of good food and a family warmth environment, people haven’t realized it yet but this is what most people are looking for, a place they feel welcome most of the time, where they can freely express their emotions and share laughter with others.


    My first look:


    My first impression of the series attracted my attention to the song itself. They had chosen a set of modern day Japan to combine with a traditional inspired song.



     I thought that it would make me feel bored in a few seconds since the scene is simple with a man serving his customers and letting them share their life stories.

    but then...

      I found myself clicking the next episode to another and the next thing I knew I was researching in sites of where I can watch more of the series.




    Scene Settings set the mood:

    Shinya Shokudo’s interior is a traditional Japanese type of diner that I’m envious to experience dining in, the wooden interiors kept the customers warm from the cold weather in Japan and the U-shaped table seating makes it inviting to make a conversation friendly environment.


    How did Master bring together a group with different personalities?

    I’m surprised as to how Master was able to bring harmonious relationships among his customers, despite the customer’s attitude differences and walks of life, Master was able to keep them together even celebrating Christmas and New Years together like a family gathering.

    The place makes me want to reflect and take it slow for a moment. I’ve been on a fast-paced day to day life that I forget to loosen up and let go, because of it, I suffered some consequences. Master has this certain aura that you would want to share that feeling that can set you free, he was able to dig deeper into the situation of his customer by only listening, he may say a few sentences but he will definitely make you realize something.


    Master's "Image":

    He is definitely the “Father” of the house. His very own words will not manipulate you to make a decision but will open options that lead to a solution or make you reflect, how definitely lucky for the customers to have someone like him. You see, some people may not have realized it, others are blessed they have met a certain “master” in their life, but others didn’t have the chance to.










    Memories of each food:

    Master serves the food with my big question in mind, how was he able to know which to serve that will definitely touch the hearts of his customers. Each episode contains a story relating to a meal. It was not only Master’s delicious cooking that the customers are attracted to but a certain meal that made an impact in their life or a certain memory had reminded them made an everlasting impression. 

    an example:

    Such an example on one episode of the Butter rice is about a taste tester who chose Master’s simple meal over the expensive five star meal he criticizes everyday, the butter rice had reminded him of a certain event in his life and combined with the warm, inviting atmosphere of Shinya Shokudo, reminiscing the past became as sweet as candy.



    Message to production:

    Make more series, please!!

    I have finished all the series, manga and movie and I would want more series, it’s selfish of me to ask but it’s become addicting for me to know what happens next. Master must have felt the same, from a view of his workplace. His customers became an entertainment to him as well, like watching a television drama but more interactive and real life. I think Master has the best television drama/comedy etc. in his diner. 


    My Acknowledgement:
    I gave thanks to Netflix when I discovered this series, if I hadn’t got the recommended title and striking picture of “Master” Shinya Shokudo’s main protagonist, I would never feel this serenity, it’s actually on a perfect timing, I have made a big decision in my life again due to my current condition.  It turned out heartbreaking for me, I’m sorry that I could not certain disclose some specific information due to privacy issues but, to be honest, the film became my stress therapy and reflection.



    All actors and actress played the parts well! Cheers to everyone!

    This video is my favorite ending song of Shinya Shokudo, Kindly play and hear the song if you can.

        When rainy season started this July, the changes in weather had made an impact on one's health. One part of the body which is often neglected is our scalp.

      We may have different views, but upon my experience, a proven technique to achieve Ultimate hair with the capability to regenerate even with exposure to harsh chemicals or heat is full attention and care to the scalp.

        Hair strands once tremendously damaged may not be able to be recovered easily even with the application of keratin treatment, the treatment may be able to make the hair look healthy on the outside but not on the inside.

       The body is capable of repairing or self-heal from damages and one best way to help the body in doing so is to consume healthy foods to aid in the process. Eat foods high in fiber, protein, examples are fish and meat, protein will help in the build up repair and you'll have healthy, beautiful hair in no time.
    trixia salonga, yourbestpicks, hair, beauty, selfie

        I use my real hair for my cosplays, blogging or modeling and the treatments and harsh chemicals I place in my hair are countless, but most people have complimented on how I even get thick and bouncy hair.

      Thinning of hair is a challenge to most people and that moment happened to me in the past, it took me a while to formulate the best remedy but it was definitely worth the wait.

        My last visit to the salon, my hair was given the title of "Virgin Hair", even though we had disclosed about the treatments that we had through for the past years, upon their further inspection, they still called it "Virgin Hair". I chuckled while telling them the history of how harsh my hair was treated before and even they were shocked.

         P.S. The Salon I went to have professionals that are able to check the hair's healthy state, for real.
    trixia salonga, yourbestpicks, hair, beauty, selfie

       Dandruff was present during my first month after the treatment and it came to the point that the flakes were starting to get embarrassing. Imagine that I was actually being photographed and speaking to VIPs on my blogging interviews and the flakes were all over the place.

     Dandruff due to the dry scalp is expected, the worse part is only the appearance of the flakes but the feeling of irresistible itchiness. People notice a lot when I scratch my head a lot and can give them a wrong impression.

       The cold weather affected my scalp resulting it to become drier and admittedly lost a big blogging opportunity only because of this problem.
    trixia salonga, yourbestpicks, hair, beauty, selfie

       The last time another cold weather came, I was prepared. I researched and talked to professionals on how to solve the dry scalp issue especially what product what I am going to be used for shampoo.

       The best thing about this is I found an article on a website about the top 10 shampoos to fix your dry scalp issue, where you can find all the information of what shampoo to use, guaranteed budget friendly.'

       You will be able to see an in depth comparisons of the shampoo brands with sizes, what its good for, the active ingredients and to make it easier, links to buy it on Amazon.

       A thorough description of each product, tips, options, verdicts, pros, and cons are provided as well. The website is updated for the year 2017.

       Just remember to check the best shampoo for you, test it out if you have any allergies to the product by applying a small amount on your skin and wait for 5 mins. If any itching or irritation occurs, do not continue the usage.

       The main important part is whenever my hair is subjected to any harsh treatment, I would let my hair take a "rest". I would only apply shampoo and NEVER COMBED my hair when damp.

      Yup, that's true, I don't comb it when damp. I go to work or take a walk outside wearing the "wet look" signature and some gave me a laugh but it didn't matter to me because there would be no way, I will add more damage on my hair thru wrong combing or be using the hair dryer.

      I don't want you to experience the same scenario, one option that I do whenever I cannot do the air dry + wet look is to schedule my bath earlier than expected before heading to any important event or occasion.

      Continous practices of above suggestions and people could not believe how strong and healthy my hair became after a month. On my first week, I got rid of dandruff and third week, hair is bouncy again, then the fourth week it was stronger than ever and less hair fall.

       The results and the duration might vary in people depending on how committed they are and what products they use on their scalp, but I'm always open to how these suggestions turned out for you?

        If you may have experienced dry scalp or dandruff and tried out the above methods, you can comment below and ask me. Let's talk about how we can get you the real doll healthy hair. Oh and don't forget to subscribe or click G+ for news and updates on my next blogging post.










    . Tuesday, August 01, 2017 .

    Today I will introduce to you a special gadget that we tested to undergo extreme situations in order to give you a very important information which might help you, especially in emergency cases.

    This is not an advertisement, I bought this phone because I am always on the search for rare gadgets.



    So without further ado let me introduce to you a phone last released in the year 2015 that caught my attention, Firefly Mobile E-100 Max!


    E-100 Max is a rugged basic phone that you'll need even in emergencies and toughest situations.

    The price is P899 with a 1-year warranty and has the battery life of  5500 Mah, tried and tested to last without charging for a month. At first, I had doubts if I should take the unit, but Firefly Mobile always had a good record to me when I bought a new phone from them a year ago, right there I inquired of the specifications:




    5500mah Power Bank
    Dual Sim
    Tough Phone
    Fog Light Torch Camera
    2 MP Camera
    Mini USB plug
    Bluetooth
    FM Radio


    We did a test in order to find out if this phone is worthy of being called a tough phone.

    1. Water Test ( 1 foot deep)
       A dipper was used about 1 foot deep and we soaked the phone for a minute or two, phone is working.
    2. Shock Test (5 Feet Height)
       Dropping the Phone from 5 feet High, no internal system damage, few scratches.

    3. Torch Test (lasts a week turned on)
      We turned on the Flashlight for 168 hours continuous without using other applications.




    4. 1 Month Battery Life test Abuse Test
      No charging for 30 days with continuous use of messaging ( 2 hours), phone(2 Hours), music via headphone (4 hours played) each day. 1 hour speaker maximum volume, battery level was left 5% after 30 days

    5. Speaker Test - Continuously playing song lasts for 2 days in full volume battery was left 20% after 2 days maximum volume.

    Comparison:
    In contrast to My Phone SOS Phone, this phone has an advantage with its powerful battery life which can assure you will serve you for a month without charging. Imagine the perfect companion that can give you peace of mind that communications intact on the time of great need.

    Tough Phone's weight is fair compared to My Phone SOS Phone.
    Fist Grip size is good especially for call.

    Warranty Card gives the unit with 12 months parts & labor. 6 Months on accessories. Warranty coverage is limited to parts & labor of manufacturer's defects only. No warranty requests will be honored for normal wear and tear, damage due to misuse, alteration to the product, water exposure, signs of obvious abuse and or negligence.

    Special message to Firefly, please create more units of E-100 Max and make upgrade on the Torch on your next models!

    Have you ever spent your time on the phone trying out to access your account, but you're still unable to pass through their authentication process? It's literally frustrating, right?

    Today I am going to give a few tips for you to prevent that scenario from happening or if it did happen, I'll also jot some tips to help you reset your password or help you recover your authentication details.

    Uverse account Authentication

    1. ATT PIN is IMPORTANT!

        So jot it down or get a password app to protect your information, the digits that ATT operators always ask to gain access is the key to every information on your account.

    Tip: Register digit pins that are easy for you to remember, the generation of this pin is often asked when you subscribe to a new service.

        Once you forget the pin, ask for another option or the operator might ask for more authentication questions.

    2. Security Question is your second life line.

      When you don't remember your passcode or pin, operators would often ask a question. Be careful on providing the answer as the system might block the number of retries.

    Tip: During Security Question generation, the operator might provide some default security question on the system then you will provide the answer, but some can actually personalize the questions, for example, ask your operator to input question of your mother's maiden name then provide the answer.

    In some authentication, they may also require for you to ask for your SSN, which often asked by Telcos or Mobility accounts

    3. Let them call the Number on File

    The last lifeline, once you fail to provide the password or the answer to security question, operators would ask to place you on hold in order to call a number on file as the last step of authentication.

    Tip: Let the operator call the number and do not expect them to provide the information since all information on the file are considered confidential until authenticated.

    If you have call waiting, tell the operator. Expect an incoming call once the first line is placed on hold, if they get you on the line, the account is fully authenticated, Yey!

    If not, the operator will tell you to

    Go to an ATT Store near you, provide your ID and reset your password and other Authentication details.

    Do not get upset if you'll be needing to go to an ATT store to reset your authentication details, ATT will protect your information the best way that they can and this is how they do it.

    Tip: If you actually do not remember any authentication details that you provided when you created the account, it's best to head on to an ATT store and reset the information immediately.
